Former Woolpert Chief Operating Officer Scott Cattran has been appointed as the architecture, engineering and geospatial company’s new president and CEO.
Cattran started work with Woolpert in 1999 as a phase manager in the Dayton, Ohio, headquarters and has since helped develop the firm’s Western presence and secure sales worth more than $30 million for the Virginia office, the company said Tuesday.
He has received a scholarship to take this year’s Global Executive M.B.A. program at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business.
Woolpert noted that the appointment coincided with the company’s news of its 2015 profits and sales amounting to $8.6 million and $125.8 million, respectively.
“The strategic plan that we set into motion at the end of 2014 helped us focus and work collaboratively as a firm in 2015, ” Cattran stated.
He added that he plans to continue the company’s development into the future as he works with a team to help build on services offered to clients and employees.
Cattran will be based in Dayton following his appointment.
